She has an abundant wealth of knowledge on yoga, Tantra, and many other subjects, inspiring her students and many to take their yoga career to another level all around the world.

This training will be held live on the new beach yoga shala on Haad Yao Beach, the west side of Koh Phangan. There are yoga mats, straps, blocks, and cushions. Whether you are serious about becoming a yoga teacher or simply wish to deepen your own personal yoga practice while learning Yoga Philosophy, this course will teach you the fundamentals of becoming a confident yoga teacher over 24 days (Sundays are rest days) of instructions for over one month or four weeks.

Only taking a limited number of students, with a careful selection process, this will allow each student to receive more personal attention on the journey of discovering yourself; finding union of your mind, body, and soul. This is a journey back to your self-love, self-mastery, and taming the ego.

First, deconstruct the layers of illusions, just when you "think" you discover your "body" knows more. Finding harmony between your willpower, strength, and your flexibility, surrender and find your true potential, day by day, change and transform to find your best versions of yourself. The head must bow to the heart and the body follows.

Upon completing the YTT with full attendance and passing of all exams, students will be certified at the graduation ceremony and certificates are issued the last Saturday.

Retreat location

Awakening awaits you in the hippie-at-heart Koh Phangan. The tiny island is a tropical paradise for those wanting to open their hearts. From the breathtaking beaches to the friendly and warm-hearted locals it is an easy place to feel the love. Popularized by the Full Moon Party, Koh Phangan has much more to offer and is still relatively undiscovered. Outside of the full moon, the island is far quieter and just waiting to be explored.​

The peace and quiet in Haad Yao and Srithanu village make it an ideal place to find yourself and the abundance of spiritual awakening opportunities with many visiting knowledgeable gurus making this their favorite location across the globe. Anahata Yoga Shala is located on the West side of the island, where the sun sets, right on the Haad Yao Beach where it is "beautiful all the time".

Close by, you can 24-minute walk, for experienced licensed drivers, rent a scooter, or a bicycle, or take one of the many taxis driving by to take you to the famous Zen Beach where you can join in on the daily Kirtan and musical sunset sessions on the beach overlooking the blissful sunsets.

Sri Thanu is also known as the "Conscious Community", where most of the yoga, Tantra, and vegan-conscious restaurants and other interesting places and happenings of the island. About 20 minutes drive from Thong Sala - Pier and the main town. Koh Phangan is a little smaller and far less developed than her sister island, Koh Samui, and much larger than Koh Tao.

The elder Buddhist Monks belief is that Koh Phangan island carries the energy of transformation and since it is located under many crystal rocks, it is no wonder that there is so much yoga and Tantra on the magical island of transformation. Often "Farrang" (tourist name in Thai) comes to the magical island of transformation and doesn't want to leave; Koh Phangan is like "Hotel California", "you can check out any time, but you can never leave". People keep coming back and love it!

​​%Now is the perfect time for you to come and make your pilgrimage with Anahata Yoga Shala on Koh Phangan your heart will open more than ever before!
